A 75-year-old woman is dead after a rollover crash at the border of Burnaby, Coquitlam and New Westminster this morning (Sept. 6).
First responders were called to the Burnaby side of North Road near the Highway 1 overpass at 6:25 a.m. for reports of a flipped vehicle, according to acting assistant fire Chief Joe Mora.
At the scene, he said firefighters found a Honda Civic on its roof in a ditch with a person trapped inside.
Police shut down North Road in both directions as Burnaby RCMP’s Criminal Collision Investigation Team took over the investigation.
Mounties later confirmed a 75-year-old female passenger in the Civic had died in the crash.
"It appears the black Honda Civic had been travelling southbound on North Road at the time of the crash," stated spokesperson Corporal Mike Kalanj in a news release.
Investigators are now asking anyone who saw the crash or the Civic before the crash to call Burnaby RCMP.
Police would also like to speak to anyone with dashcam video on North Road between Holmes Street and Como Lake Avenue between 6 a.m. and 6:30 a.m.
Anyone with more information is encouraged to call Burnaby RCMP at 604-646-9999 and quote file-number 2022-29819.
